    Default colour coding

    Hello everyone, I am thinking of colour coding the plastic bits on my elegance ie, the side skirts and the valance bits on the bumpers. I was wondering if they are all fully detatchable for ease of spraying etc. Also, how much am i looking at for the paint (i can get them sprayed by a mate) but he warned me the paint (especially the laquer) might be abit pricey. Has any one any tips or hints? Thanks in advance!

    Can't help with paint costs but the front and rear bumper skirts come off real easy and I understand the side skirts drop off with a couple of screw turns.

    I've recently had my rear valance & side skirts colour coded. Removed them myself with advice from Duncan & Andy. You just need to buy some new plastic rivets. See these for more info:

    So its relatively straight forward then, it does look very good, makes it look that little bit more special. if its that easy to do its a no brainer really.

    You're lucky with Silver as all the main colours look great, Red, Blue or Yellow. My personal favourite (biased) is blue with silver decals
